I’ve recently become enamored with Richard Maguire’s (aka The English Woodworker) Little John Workbench and am seeking advice on building something similar. I think it makes great use of space and would fit well in my small city shop.
Some photos of the bench, from the blog post.
Unfortunately Richard didn’t share much about he built it, thus this post seeking advice. A few things I’m curious about (given the paucity of info I know a lot of this will be guesswork)
- What are the potential major difficulties in building a project like this?
Finally, how do people feel about copying someone else’s design for personal use? My feeling is that it’s okay since I’m not selling it, and will likely make some changes to it as I build, but I’d like to hear others’ thoughts. I did contact Richard offering to buy plans if they were available, but didn’t hear back.
